Amano Chocolate’s Macoris chocolate has a unique backstory. Amano Chocolate’s founder, Art Pollard, found a beautiful cocoa plantation that forever caught his imagination. The cocoa plantation was overcast, and the cocoa trees were new and laden with a rainbow of cocoa pods. The light coming through the leaves gave the founder the feeling that if there really was a Garden of Eden, it would be just like this. After seven years of negotiations, Amano Chocolate was finally able to create chocolate with beans from this magical place. The Macoris chocolate has a score of 86.6/100 and won the Bronze award in the Plain/Origin dark chocolate bars category at the International Chocolate Awards World Finals.
Amano Chocolate’s Citrus Mélange À Trois is a chocolate that perfectly balances the flavor of cocoa with citrus. The chocolate is made with cocoa that Amano Chocolate obtains from farmers in Ecuador. Amano Chocolate then combines it with the oils from yuzu, an incredible citrus from Japan, tangerine, and grapefruit. The chocolate also contains tiny pieces of orange fruit leather, giving it an incredible juicy sensation.
